        Room correction is actually pretty darn cool. I still need to get a mic for my Denon HT receiver.

        initial impressions are it's not the panacea some may say it is. or, like some say, 85% is frequency response. That other 15%, tho, might be rather beguiling.

        I have noticed since I have started studying into measuring speakers that I have bought less gear.

      AN dealer managed the upsale. Hemp 8" drivers & silver coil 1" tweeters; basically AN-J/E SPe without the silver cabling. Burn-in commence!

      ok-shit all over me, but revisiting EL-8O, Gumby-->Cavali LC balanced ain't too shabby. Tipped up/bass light, but sub bass has good control.

        also, haven't heard EL-8O headstage this well so far...

        That sucks! Hopefully it is not too expensive to fix

        Foam surrounds are supposedly cheap to fix but I I get scared of doing it wrong.

        We'll see what the local AN dealer says. Peter Q probably spec'd some oddball foam density and proprietary glue after a bazillion different auditions, so I wouldn't really trust just sending the driver off to PE for generic stuff, or doing it myself with a generic kit. but, who knows...

      no dice on the 1950s sylvanias, one tube dead. spent several hours farting around with tubes.

        Pvane UK-6SN7 are "best" overall IMO, YMMV, YOLO whatever. Followed by RCA 5692, then Sophias. Different flavors.

        @zerodeefex: Yellow or green lettering? I've got a pair of 1950 2-hole, black plate bottom getter Sylvanias that I havent tried yet. I'll pop them in this morning and give a listen.

        And they seem to LIKE being screwed. Why? Doesn’t seem to be ignorance. More like Jim Jones drinking the Kool-aid.
